A few weeks ago we had to do a project on debt for my economics class. I have to admit that I wasn’t really interested in the project and I pretty much did the bare minimum. One of the kids in my class took the project seriously and reported on the topic of the US national debt. He showed us a website with National Debt Quotations. When I saw how quickly it was rising I was concerned. When I saw what the debt per person was, I was horrified.
